This looks really neat, I like how realistic it is! These are the best kind, in my opinion anyway.

Wow... That's absolutely amazing.. The strokes for the painting seem big and vivid, but the texture that's being used for this gives a raw sort of feeling, and, in a way, seems to give moment of the ocean's water. :aww: Beautiful work! :heart:

This is terrific. Very lyrical. A nice interpretation of the myth. I adore how thickly you load your brushes. No paint scarcity here!

i love that it looks almost like she's on land, but she's underwater, it isn't covered in a blue haze, great technique

Your work looks great!  If I may ask - do you photograph it or scan it in?  And what kind of surface do you generally use?

Thanks, I usually photograph now, though I used to scan everything. I work on MDF board primed with acrylic gesso.

Thanks Rob!

Do you find that photographing delivers the same result in quality and resolution as a scan?  Or is it mostly for convenience?

Thanks again for your info!

My biggest difficulty is glare from relief brush texture. A scan gives me better resolution, but slightly skewed colors and glare has to be removed largely by hand, which can take several hours. When photographing my work I use polarized lighting gels and a polarized lens filter that remove all glare. By shooting in raw format and color correcting with a grey card I get the most accurate color I've managed. It's not as high resolution or crisp as a scan, but it's good enough for almost any application and it saves me those hours of glare removal.

Beautiful curve of tail and proportions, exquisite pose, wonderful color and light and successfully minimalist.  I just HATE her fin, the rest of her is really very good indeed.
